The white pick up buoys are for visiting vessels. The others are for permanent holders so if you grab an orange or pink may have to move. Stay close to vessels when looking for a free buoy as channel is narrow. There is an isolated danger buoy that is slightly off position. Keep this to North and pass south of it as many boats have grounded out here. Go in on a rising tide and see where the limits and bumps are at low tide! Rubbish can go on a dinghy to Shalfleet and 15 minute walk from there takes you to a nice pub and there is also a small shop there but it has strange opening hours! There are some amazing walks from here but make sure to time them with the tide else you will be stuffed when you get back to the dinghy.

Lovely place to anchor or pick up a buoy if there is space. Often see seals here! Small beach and good for swimming or kayaking but beware strong currents in the entrance.
